Please read Netiquette before interacting with the Open Source Communities

Community sites

General Portals

  • Meld - An embedded Linux developer community site, designed to enable developers, ISVs, and hardware manufacturers to share, connect, and design, sponsored by MontaVista Software
  • Linux.com - Linux community portal sponsored by the Linux Foundation
  • LinuxDevices.com - the canonical (no pun intended) place for news about embedded Linux
  • Linux.org - an excellent starting place for all things linux

Interview candidates

The following page has a list of people we'd like to interview for an eLinux.org feature:

Foundations and Forums

Communities for beginners

Linux User Groups

One way to get involved with a bunch of like-minded Linux enthusiasts is to participate in a local Linux users group. The following site has a good database of Linux users groups:

Development Model

Reasons for contributing to open source

Quality Assurance

This section has links to aspects of the development model designed to provide quality assurance.

Certificate of Origin

Developers who contribute code to the Linux kernel agree to the Developer Certificate Of Origin by signing their code, with a "Signed Off By" line.
